Petty Socialist Tyranny

One of my personal pet peeves is when politicians use government to try and dictate certain behavior or choices to the citizenry. For the most part, this is the province of the left. When it comes from the GOP, it takes the form of legislating morality to please the “frothing fundamentalist fruitcakes”, as Nicki calls them, or something to help the corporatist elitist types. As many of you may know, the socialist chumps known as the DC city government enacted a “fee” for the privilege of using a disposable plastic bag at a restaurant, grocery store or convenience store, in the amount of 5¢ per offending bag. Neighboring Montgomery County in the People’s Republic of Maryland decided this was a GREAT IDEA, and followed suit. I work in DC, so I avoid that tax at every turn. I’ll carry my Subway or Quizno’s sub back to the office in the paper wrapper, or just go elsewhere rather than pay it. Such a thing could never occur here in the Old Dominion, right? Even the most blue-bellied liberal nanny-stater legislator would know better than this, right?

Scott Surovell and "Toddy" Puller

A match made in Hell... Two worthless nanny-staters holding hands.

Wrong. I give you Scott Surovell (Douchebag-Mount Vernon), a trial lawyer, delegate, and ally/friend of the crone known as “Toddy” Puller, who until I recently moved, represented me in the Senate of Virginia. He’s based in the socialist enclave of Mount Vernon in northern Fairfax County, so he has no fear of defeat in a general election. This entity has gifted of us with HB 124, his latest and most egregious attempt (co-created with Joe Morrissey (Douchebag-Highland Springs) ) to shove this petty tyranny down our throats. Seriously? The best part? THE TAX IS 20¢. That’s right, citizens, 400% of the tax levied on the unfortunate victims of the DC and Monkey County governments. Surovell admits that he perhaps won’t get the full effect he’s looking, that it’ll be cut to 5¢ in committee. How magnanimous of you, you worthless, nosy, high-handed piece of socialist rubbish! I take it as a deadly personal insult that the likes of you befoul the state legislature of the Old Dominion! You are a DISGRACE!!! Someone with even a passing understanding of the proper province of government would understand that the tax code is to be used sparingly, and even then ONLY FOR REVENUE GENERATION, NOT LIMP-WRISTED LEFT-WING SOCIAL ENGINEERING!!! I realize the GOP won’t let this become law this session either, but every Republican is on notice: I and many other liberty-loving activists are watching. If ANY Republican delegate or senator votes for this garbage in committee or on the floor, we will work for your immediate defeat in 2013. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Surovell and his ilk are the enemy, in the purest, most visceral sense. They represent petty, pusillanimous grassroots tyranny, in the name of some “cause”, in this case defending the Chesapeake Bay. Hogwash. This clown and everyone like him deserve to have their feeding time at public troughs severely curtailed. And did I mention he’s a trial lawyer to boot? Here’s his blog. Commence fire.


Best Tax Day Rant EVER

Don’t have much time today, so I’ll humbly submit this.

Please read. It’s important. 

Here’s a taste:

Government can’t balance a checkbook. They’re idiots. I know finance math. I do it for a living. And when I look at the numbers involved here, (and the interest!) it makes my head swim. Okay, for you non-accountants, when they start bandying numbers about on the news of 4 trillion such and such, and a hundred billion this and that, I know that your eyes glaze over. You think to yourself, “Oh, it is just the same old same old, bunch of politicians spending too much money, blah blah blah.”


Saying that this is the same old same old, is like saying that gophers digging up your lawn is the same level of disaster as Krakatoa. Over the last couple of years we’ve reached a whole new level of crazy. Our spending has gone insane. We’re spending more money, faster, than all of mankind, throughout all of recorded human history. Economists aren’t sure what’s going to happen, because this has never happened before. Ever. On Earth. We’ve strayed into strange new territory here and there are many possible outcomes if we don’t stray the hell back out. And don’t for a second think that any of those possible outcomes are remotely good. No. They range somewhere between the Great Depression and Mad Max.


You’ve probably been seeing 6.2% of your check taken for SS and 1.45%
for Medicare (not even going to get into FUTA and SUTA).  What most
folks don’t realize is that your employer matches that… So basically you
could get a 16% raise tomorrow if it wasn’t for that withholding.  “Oh,
but that’s saving for my retirement!”  Bull crap. I could take 16% of
my salary, use it to store canned food, and I’d come out ahead of what
I’m actually going to get from the government for my retirement. The
money that’s been paid in already is long gone, because expecting
congress to save money is like expecting crack whores to save crack. 

Go read. Seriously.

Happy Tax Day

WTF is a “Snooki”

and why is it in the news? And why does it matter for what politician it votes?  And why is it so revoltingly orange, that orangutans in a zoo are hurling their excrement in a jealous rage?

First, Snooki took on Obama over Twitter. Then, Obama said he didn’t even know who she was. And on Thursday night’s second season premiere of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” Snooki took the ball back, and went after Obama again.

In one scene, Snooki — with her impressively orange tan — broke the shocking news that she’s been staying away from her home away from home: Tanning salons.

“I don’t go tanning anymore because Obama put a 10% tax on tanning. McCain would never put a 10% tax on tanning. Because he’s pale and would probably want to be tan,” she said.

Congratulations, America.  This is what votes for politicians in this country, and that’s why you’re left with the shoddy choices at election time.

And you wonder why this country is so monumentally fucked?  Because this insipid twat’s vote counts as much as yours!

This should be our new Great Seal

Someone in Washington State has a terrific sense of humor… or a terrific understanding of reality.  A measure filed with the Secretary of State of Washington proposes changing the seal of the State of Washington from a depiction of George Washington to…

…a tapeworm dressed in a three-piece suit attached to the lower intestine of the taxpayer as the central figure and encircling the vignette the words, “Committed to sucking the life blood out of each and every tax payer.”

Given the current Congress and Administration, the seal would be more appropriate in Washington, DC.
